What was anime about Domestic Girlfriend?

Natsuo Fujii is in love with his teacher Hina. To forget his feelings for him, Natsuo goes somewhere with his classmates and meets a strange girl named Rui Tachibana. After a few strange events, Rui wants Natsuo to do a favor and escape together in secret. But he doesn’t know the route will be Rui’s home, and Rui asks Natsuo to be with him. This desire is not because he is in love, but because he just wants to experience this experience. Natsuo hesitantly accepts the offer, believing that this might help forget Hina.

But after this incident, Natsuo has a new problem to face. His father has decided to marry, and Natsuo will have two half-sisters as a result of this marriage. Unfortunately, he also knows these sisters very well. He recently learned that those sisters are none other than Hina and Rui! Now he will live with the teacher he loves and his “first time”. He finds himself in an unexpected love triangle and begins to climb into adulthood.

Will there be a second season of Domestic Girlfriend?

As of Jun 13, 2021, at the time of writing, Diomedéa or any related company has not yet renewed the anime for a second season. We examine the official website and Twitter accounts; the only focus for anime is the blu-ray broadcast recently. There is no preparation and renewal announcement for the second season yet. Till we get an official announcement, we can speculate about the second season possibilities. We have checked out the manga, which is the original content of the anime and the only source material, and the anime’s popularity status.

  • Jun 13, 2021: Spoilers from the manga are added to the article. Renewal status reviewed.

Last year, a fan asked manga artist Kei Sasuga about the second season. The answer is the kind that will upset the fans a little. Stating that there are no plans for a second season at the moment, Sasuga sadly reduces future hopes. However, there is no certain reason why the creators should not have such plans in the future.

Manga Status (Source material availability)

As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, Domestic Girlfriend is adapted from a manga series written and illustrated by Kei Sasuga. The manga series published by Kodansha began to be published in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2014. You can also get the manga in English thanks to the USA distributor of the same company. Manga June 10 completed its broadcast life with its last volume in 2020. It consists of 28 volumes in total.

The first season of the anime covers 1-8 volumes of the manga. It seems that there is enough source material for a second season. In fact, if the series likely uses as much source material in a second season as in the first season, there seems to be enough source material for a third season as well. However, the anime series can be produced to support the manga series of the series and for advertising purposes. For this reason, it isn’t easy to see the second season of the series, even if there is enough source material sometimes.

Original Manga Sales of Domestic Girlfriend

When considering producing the second anime sequel to “Domestic Girlfriend,” the sales of the original manga should be considered. The original manga published by Kodansha sales greatly influences the production of the sequel to the anime. As of December 2020, the original manga’s cumulative circulation for “Domestic Girlfriend” has exceeded 4.2 million.

Sales of the original manga have been strong even after the first season of anime was broadcast, and sales have increased by nearly 1 million since the first season of anime was broadcast. Since the effect of the special edition also affects the sales of the original manga, it can be said that there is a high possibility that the second sequel to the anime will be produced as one of the promotional purposes in the future.

Blu-Ray Disc Sales of Domestic Girlfriend

Next, we should look at the possibility of producing the second sequel to the anime in terms of disc sales. Disc sales are an important factor in the production of anime sequels. This is because it is said that the average disc sales standard required to decide on sequel production is 5,000. If 5,000 can be sold, the production company can make a profit. But it’s a little different for Domestic Girlfriend. Because, unlike many anime series, Blu-Ray discs are not sold for this anime.

However, instead, a code is attached to the special edition of the manga, and you can watch the animation with the application “PlayPic”. It is a net download type disk, we can say. To conclude, from the perspective of disc sales, we cannot predict the possibility of producing a second sequel. However, if the anime special edition shows good sales, DMM, which operates Play Pic, may invest in the second term’s production.

Release date of the second season of anime?

After all these evaluations, we can say that the anime’s manga provides sufficient source material and the manga sales are good. However, Diomedea, the anime creator, is a small studio and these days is in stagnation. The company, which did not release any anime in 2020, also has orders for two anime such as Futsal Boys and The Saint’s Magic Power Is Omnipotent. There is no plan for “Domestic Girlfriend” yet to appear, and it seems we cannot see the new season till 2022.

What is the plotline of Domestic Girlfriend Season 2?

Fans are wondering what will happen in a possible second season plotline. The rest of the story seems to have some breakouts in the relationship between Natsuo and Hina. As you remember, Natsuo and Hina’s roads were separated because of school issues. Therefore, the second season will focus more on the relationship between Natsuo and Rui.

The intrigues in the love triangle of Rui, Natsuo, and Hina will increase. The manga made interesting allusions; Rui and Natsuo were getting married, having a wedding and having children. Flashforwards in the manga show Natsuo’s wife, but we can’t see her face. This knot can be untied in the second season.

The end of the first season of Domestic Na Kanojo was pretty shocking for Hina fans. Natsuo and Rui eventually discussed their relationship with Hina, after which Hina decided to leave the city. Natsuo and Rui are now a couple, as the fan-favorite character moves to a distant school. Based on the manga’s plotline after the first season finale, Natsuo eventually becomes a famous novelist, while Rui embarks on her journey to become a chef. Moreover, as the plot progresses, some problems develop in their relationship.

How did the manga end? » “Critical Spoilers”

In the last episodes, when Rui gets pregnant, she gets married to Natsuo. “Rui and Natsuo got married. Wow! You probably can’t believe you hear that.” In the final episodes, Hina has an accident and falls into a coma. Rui and Natsuo decide not to marry while Hina is in this state. They now live as a family of four. Natsuo, Rui, their daughter Haruka, and a comatose Hina.

Chapter 275 ends with Rui saying that they should marry Natsuo while Hina is still in a coma to represent her love for each other. In the eyes of many, this is quite unnecessary because the drama focused on Hina and Natsuo. Still, it was the actions of Rui and Natsuo that directed the drama. Simply put, it doesn’t really make sense for this to happen in the last two or three episodes. We think Sasuga was trying to achieve the idea that “both win in the end”. Hina and Natsuo get married and have a daughter. They continue their lives as a happy family of four. A strange family situation indeed, but also very undesirable. In a few years, it would be nice if someone wrote a side story about Hina and how she learned to love after the tragedy that happened to her several times on the show.

Kadir Ak
Hello, this is Kadir. I am the lead author of the blog you are reading. My fondness for TV series and Anime made me a good researcher about the release dates. I like to share my researches and analyses on the blog.


  1. I always wanted him to be with Rui, and I think it did. But I’m sure in season two, Hina will come and steal our boy from Rui. There will be people who will both be angry with this and be happy about it.

    • No, I really want Hina to be With Natauo because they both love each other more than Rui ever could.

      • You are the only one who agreed with me. I want Hina to be with Natsuo too because they both loved each other, and Rui always knew that and kept trying to get them to break up.

  2. Indeed, the finale was very good. Especially after the last letter, Natsuo’s shout was devastating. But I saw the book in that cupboard after Hina left school, that’s enough for me. And they showed the ring for dessert. Rui is a really nice girl but not Natsuo’s type. Hina and Natsuo look good together.

  3. Its ending is really sad. I believe in the second, Natsuo and Rui will not be together, and in my opinion, I really wish they won’t be together. Natsuo and Hina will be a better couple. In ep 10, Natsuo says he will only love Hina, and he will not allow any other girl in his life. If season 2 releases, I believe that they will be e together again, and they will always love each other. If it doesn’t happen, it may be heartbroken for many fans. I am looking forward to a happy ending.

    • Yes, I hope Natsuo and Hina will be together. I am looking forward to a happy ending. She changed her school there is no problem for them to be together. I don’t know why she left him.

  4. The comment contains spoilers from the manga.

    If Domestic Girlfriend gets season 2, the first thing they will continue to show will be the relationship between Rui and Natsuo. Which will lead to their marriage, and they will have a baby girl. But in the end, we don’t know what will happen and who wins Natsuo, but in the manga, it seems like at the end, either both the sisters will be living together with Natsuo or else Hina and Natsuo will Iive alone.

    • I’ve finished domestic na kanojo in manga already, and I wish Hina and Natsuo have more feeler at the end of the story. I read the whole story already, and it’s all about Hina’s love and suffering. I mean, it’s sad for me to read they had only a few pages in the final chapter of happy moment with Natsuo. She suffers enough from this manga story, and I wish I could see more feeler for Natsuo and Hina, both manga and anime.

  5. The comment contains spoilers from the manga.

    Honestly, I like both girls so much for different reasons… I wish he could be with them both. It’d be nice if they can both love him and he them. But getting married to Rui and having a baby will warm my heart for now. I swear if he leaves her tho imma kill him!

  6. Y’all. This is incest. Remember how Rui and Hina’s mom was cheated on. Okay, so around the end of episode eleven, they state that maybe they shouldn’t have married *AGAIN*. I really feel like they (as in Riu and Hina) are half Siblings to our boy here and that their parents may have been waiting for the right time to tell them, and then things started going wild.

  7. Before the time skip, Natsuo was 20 years old, and Rui got in touch, and Rui had a child named Haruka. After the time skip for Haruka for five years, there was a conflict with Hina. After the conflict, Natsuo and Hina married Natsuo, never married Rui, which was fair because Rui got a child and despised got Natsuo.
